Dark Dimensions: City of Fog
Pretty Decent Game
I enjoyed this game quite a bit but for me I think it could have been even better. I suppose I would have liked a little more to do at times, seems a lot of times you would go through a lot of trouble to gain access somewhere and then when you finally get there, there might be 1 or 2 things to do in that area, although a lot of the stuff was just informative to keep the story moving along it just seemed to me like it would have been better to have more things to do. In the end I enjoyed the game and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Great game ! HO very clear,never boring.
This was a lengthy game with excellent graphics,clear HO,interesting storyline . I was disappointed somewhat in the ending however,but I guess you can't have everything. When you think you are almost at the end,there is another scene that takes you into another path toward the conclusion. I really enjoyed this game although some of the puzzles took too much time and I got lazy and just skipped them. lol

Loved the Game, but had some glitches!
Well, the game itself was great with a lot of different venues I thought it was a fun game, but the major thing that I did not like was that when you were doing the HOS's...the kind where you match two items to make the one listed...I had to click the second part at least 20 times before it stuck. The game was saying you need a tool or that just happens in the movies (which was very annoying}. Let's face it, a fish tail is the only thing you could attach to half a woman that would fit the item listed as a mermaid..ha! This happened on quite a few HOS. Now for the positives. It was a good length story wise, the art was great and very detailed...the characters (all being ghosts) were done extremely well) they did not look like robots like you see in some games). The puzzles were great, but I'm not much of a puzzle person. I did have to use the walkthrough a few times, but I'm not an expert yet. I enjoyed the game as much as a CE. The ending was kind of weird. You had to go quite a distance to get to the train station,,. but to get back to town you only had to step through a window?? Oh well, except for a few glitches the game was still enjoyable and I probably will play it again. I think you would like the game overall.

Great IHOG Adventure
Pros: Graphics were dark and eerie, great details, voice overs were well done, puzzles were definitely challenging (I skipped 3 out of frustration), the IHO scenes were fun and challenging (because you didn't always know immediately what you needed to interact with) and it was a decent length (took me about 4 hours).
Cons: Music and sounds can get annoying and some are louder than others which meant I had to constantly adjust my volume. The hint is only somewhat helpful. If you're in a scene where something needs to be done, like pulling down a ladder, and you use the hint button, it will highlight the ladder that needs to be pulled down, even though you don't have a tool yet for it. It's more of an FYI than an hint but a hint is wasted nonetheless and you need to wait for it to recharge. It also doesn't help in terms of where you need to be. It won't "direct" you to the area of interest. Which will sometimes lead you to go back through every single scene to see if you can find what you missed.
Overall a great game with plenty of puzzle challenges and HO scenes. The story is interesting enough but I am hoping that the sequel addresses some unanswered questions from the end of this one. I haven't played it yet, so I don't know. If it doesn't, I'll be a little disappointed that I was left a bit hanging.
Will be playing again and will attempt to solve the 3 puzzles I skipped. :oP

Definitely one of the better ones
I was completely enchanted with this game. Definitely immersive and fun. Some of the mini-games were a bit too challenging for me, but thankfully, there's a skip button!
I also found the hint button helpful in some areas but in others it was lacking. For example: sometimes it seemed to only show me what needed to be done in a specific area, not necessarily what I could do at that time (if I didn't have the object needed to finish the task, for example). So, it left me scratching my head a few times as to where to go next.
Luckily, there is a Walkthru online, which I had to consult a time or two.
Overall though...I really enjoyed this one! Highly recommend!

Lengthy Play Time - excellent puzzles
I loved everything about this game. Enjoyed playing it for several days. The storyline was interesting, artwork great and I thought the puzzles were extremely challenging. This game was a nice value considering I bought the standard version. It rivals some of the best Collectors Editions on BFG.

Another great Hidden Object ADVENTURE Game
I just finished this game, and found it fun and challenging.
The Hidden Object puzzles were a little difficult, but the hint system was good, and allowed repeated use. I also liked the two-step objects. (My only complaint was that sometimes the clicking had to be too precise. I KNEW I found the object, but had to click several times for it to register. The same was true of some of the keys, etc. Sometimes you had be so precise in using it, that I wondered it I even had the right tool! But those are my only mild complaints.) The story line was good, I enjoyed that the game required going back and forth between scenes, revisting some scenes repeatedly. Those who prefer a straightforward game will find this annoying, but I loved it. I also enjoyed the puzzles within the game, and was able to solve most of them - though I was glad that we were permitted to skip games, and I had to do this once or twice. (I wish I could go back and play some of those games by themselves. ) I was also a little annoyed by the cliffhanger suggested at the end of the game, but was so glad to have completed it that I rerally didn't care! All in all it was a very good game, and a lengthy game which provides your money's worth and hours of entertainment.
(If you're like me, just be sure to find a good walkthrough when you get stuck!)

WOW, my new favorite!!!
I have a new favorite and this will probably stay at the top of my list FOREVER. Why oh why don't they produce more games like THIS ONE>!!??
The spooky factor is WAY UP THERE while maintaining quality, charm, wit, challenge and substance.
The graphics are absolutely fantastic and the music out of this world!!!! I am in LOVE with this game ~~ I've had it for a while and hadn't played it until now ... WHAT was I waiting for!?
The storyline is enticing and pulls you on... I couldn't stop playing until the wee hours of the morning and wish it would never stop.
Absolutely THE BEST spooky game EVER. Bewitching and enthralling.... true talent is obvious with this one and they did it all without any nasties (if you know what I mean)... it had the chills and thrills and spooky without gross over-done or depressing aspects.
I would say overall, it had more of a strong adventure theme with H0. The H0 scenes are scrumptuous as are all the areas and it seems to go on forever. Lots and lots of places to explore and hidden secrets behind every door. I didn't need to use the guide more than once or twice yet the puzzles challenging. Yay!!! I almost never play a game twice but this one I just may to relish each scene again. It is the BEST!!! Can you tell I love it!?
CHECK IT OUT!

Sometimes frustrating, sometimes clever
A lot of my comments have been made by others already. It was frustrating to not find the exact place for an item and have it jump back to your inventory. A couple of frustrating areas were just my not realizing you can use something twice.
Overall, I was impressed with the length of the game. Not my favorite game, but definitely worth a sale price.
